Can someone quote the maximum % distance that a stud can be notched?

Thanks for the very quick reply and reference unistudent123 and welcome to the forum.
I am a bit surprised that a % isn't quoted given that internal walls can have smaller studs but 20mm max for a 90mm stud seems reasonable.

By Googling AS 1684.2-2010 Part 22.214.171.124 I was able to bring up the Australian Standards for...
Residential timber-framed construction

All 274 pages of it! Thanks again.

While we're on the topic.................
I want to run a few 'conduits' in the walls of a new build for future home entertainment wiring.
I've 'found' the AS referenced above (thanks unistudent123) but am a bit confused by this......
"Top and bottom plates in internal non-loadbearing and non-bracing walls may be discontinuous up to 60 mm (cut or drilled) to permit installation of services provided that, at the discontinuity, the plates are trimmed or otherwise reinforced either side of the discontinuity to maintain the lateral and longitudinal integrity of the wall."
So I can drill out (or even totally remove ??) up to 60mm of the Top Plate, say drill a 60mm hole in the top plate, but what does this mean (or how do I comply) with the part "...... the plates are trimmed or otherwise reinforced either side of the discontinuity to maintain the lateral and longitudinal integrity of the wall."
